Pictures of France

There are many reasons why France is one of the most photographed countries in the world: The storied Eiffel Tower. The imposing public monuments. The meandering alleyways, flanked by walkups. It all adds up to a certain je ne sais quoi, spiced up with joie de vivre and flavored by haute cuisine. See for yourself.
